Backstage in Engin-X

I've posted the first Backstage Science video in a little while.

The project's main production period has ended for now, but I'm still putting together more films from all the footage.

There's still some really good ones to come.

The latest was inside an instrument called Engin-X - one of the many "hutches" at the end of "beam lines" at the ISIS neutron source.

Engin-X has more of an emphasis on engineering, so often it is probing things like the strength of metals, etc.

It also means sometimes the samples can be quite big (like plane wings).

For this reason, Engin-X is quite a big instrument.

Here's the video:
